Woven Ribbons and Tapes
Woven ribbons consist of yarns, rovings or twisted yarns. For composite applications our woven semi-finished products' thread orientation is 0° and 90°, (guidance thread in 0°) or 0° (guidance thread in 90°). Maximum ribbon / tape width is 30 cm.
It is also possible to vary the width within the ribbon, resulting in a narrowing structure. Other technologies like braiding or twisting may also be included within a ribbon structure.
- no frays because of the return weft
- easy handling
- individual design
- time saving
- suitable for series manufacturing
As several plies can be woven together, multi-layered weaving is an improvement of ribbon design. Multi-layered woven ribbons are especially appropriate for series production, as placement time into the component can be minimized.
